Two women Army officers selected to train as combat helicopter pilots

For the first time in the history of the elite Army Aviation Corps, two women officers have been selected to undergo training at the Combat Army Aviation Training School, Nashik. Earlier women-only recruited for the ground duty only. So this is good news for all the girls who want to join Army as a pilot in near future. These two women pilots will be flying helicopters to forward locations and will also be a part of border operations.

15 officers had volunteered to join the elite corps of army aviation but only two officers could make it after a hard selection process that also included the Pilot Aptitude Battery Test and medical evaluation. On successful completion of training at Nashik, the women officers will join flying duties by July 2022.

Women can also join as a pilot in Aviation Corps:-

The Indian Army Chief General Manoj Mukund Naravane had earlier said, “I had initiated a proposal that women officers can be recruited to Army Aviation. The next course which will begin in July this year will induct women for training purposes in the flying branch and after one year they will be able to join in operational duties.

How Indian Armed forcess encouraging the women to join Flying branch?

In 2018, Flying Officer Avani Chaturvedi of the Indian Air Force scripted history by becoming the first Indian woman to fly a fighter aircraft solo. She flew a MiG-21 bison in her first solo flight.

Chaturvedi was part of a three-member women team commissioned as flying officers in July 2016, less than a year after the government decided to open the fighter stream for women on an experimental basis.

Last year, the Navy announced deploying its first batch of women pilots on the Dornier maritime aircraft.

So there is lots of development happening in all Indian Armed forces for encouraging women to join flying branches. This is the real women’s empowerment.
